This is a build that I started a few months ago. I originally had an RX480 but because of the mining craze, i was able to sell it for good profit and decided to just buy a 1080. Its overkill for my needs but i cant say i dont like the power.
I chose this CPU because i really don't have any use for an i7. Haven't noticed this cpu holding me back at all even with my 1080. I think it will last me a good long while.
This is a decent cooler for what it is but you just are not going to get good cooling with a small piece of metal like that. I plan on upgrading to something better but for now, it looks nice and does fine without any overclocking, can't really expect any more than that.
This is the prettiest mobo i have ever seen! Besides the RGB, which i dont care much about, The heat sinks are huge for a mITX board and look really nice. I mostly got this board because it has onboard wifi, M.2 Drives for future upgrades and all the features the big boards have on a small form factor.
Had this drive for a few years on my old build. Still works great so why should I change it.
Hard to give a 1080 a bad review. This card is amazing and way more powerful than anything I have used in the past. This card gets hot though and while the blower style is probably better for my small form factor case, this thing will thermal throttle guaranteed unless I put the fans on 100%. Card is not to loud though and looks sexy so i am happy with the purchase
Have always loved the look of this case and so when it came time to build i knew i wanted it. Very easy to build in and looks so cool!
Only just got this PSU and so i cant speak to how it will perform long term but I will say, the cables look good and it was really easy to work with. I also like the ECO mode and 7 year warranty.
Very nice monitors that i got on sale for 150 each. The slim bezels are nice though, if i had known i was gonna get a gtx 1080, I maybe would have made a different choice but for now, i am happy.
